Tired of Society

Tired of Society

The society is tired of me
And I as well
The politics of eagle-eyed men
The ranting of drooling masses
The wasted saliva of innocents
The society is tired of me
And I as well.

The religion of wolf-skinned men
The soiled agbada of ministers
Ministers on seat
Ministers on pulpit
I am tired of Society
Society is tired of me

The gossip that flows with the wind
The market women that flows the gossip
The white house with greened growths
The crooked walls on smooth floors
I am tired of Society
Society is tired of me.

Your mother that raises her voice
For fucks that don’t matter
You for caring
For fucks that don’t matter
Your father that dictates his position
On fucks that don’t matter
You for caring and a copycat
The flaws you grabbed
The fucks you gave
The ones you didn’t
Tired of Society!
